At Play Therapy Base we work in partnership with our parent and carers recognising that the child will not experience affective change without their key adults being included in their therapeutic journey.
Find out about the sessions we offer here.
Contact: We maintain contact with our parent and carers in the best way that suits their lifestyle. This is agreed when we start working with you and your child. This could be by phone calls at specific times in the working day or text exchanges or diary catch up meetings.
While waiting for your child in our family waiting space at Play Therapy Base: We always have a member of senior or office staff around to make a coffee for our parents and carers. They offer an ear to parent and carers if required. If our waiting space is busy, we will try to support a confidential conversation to happen in a confidential area at Play Therapy Base or offer a call at a different time.
Linking into other supports: We can support parents and carers to access other services or source information about resources in the local community. Our senior team will be able to listen to your needs and support you to link into agencies if this is required. Our website also has links to services and resources that may be relevant to your family’s needs.
